FANTASTIC KICKBOXING!! I can not rave more about the KICKBOXING class at Ziwak's! The class is an awesome cardio workout and FUN!! Nellie does an amazing job getting you motivated! Nellie not only is helping you get in shape, she is also teaching you self defense!! I have been going to the class for over a year and I have seen a huge change in myself!! I recommend that everyone try a class!!
BEST KICKBOXING CLASS IN THE AREA!!
I HAVE TO ADMIT THAT I WAS NERVOUS AT FIRST ABOUT BEING IN A 'CLASS' BUT THAT ENDED AS SOON AS I WALKED INTO NELLIE'S KICK BOXING CLASS. I'M NOW ADDICTED TO THE CLASS! ZIWAK'S IS TRULY A NO JUDEGMENT ZONE AND THE HOUR CLASS FLIES BY AND NO TWO CLASSES HAVE EVER BEEN THE SAME SO IT'S KEEPS MY MUSCLES GUESSING. I'VE SEEN GREAT RESULTS AND MADE NEW FRIENDS. I'D HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS KICK BOXING CLASS TO ANYONE!
Ziwak's has the best kickboxing class anywhere! I have been taking classes for almost a year and am addicted to the energy and positive attitude. The class has all levels and ages of participants and all are welcome. The instructor Nellie focuses on making sure we do the moves correctly so that we get a fantastic workout while learnng proper technique. I have never sweat so much in any other workout-- ever! It has helped me build a strong core and good muscle tone while shredding fat. I actually schedule events and appointments around this class so that I never miss a workout!
Ziwak's Martial Arts is simply outstanding and I'm so proud to have my 7 year old son learn from the best. I honestly can't begin to do justice to the Ziwak name by saying what a great place this is to learn self-defense in the form of Tae Kwon Do. It's so much more. My son’s confidence in his ability to stick up for himself is absolutely growing exponentially thanks to his lessons there. In my opinion Master Ziwak and Ma'am are genuine real life heros whose teachings are rooted in respect for one another and self, while making an everlasting mark on furthering all that is great about Tae Kwon Do. What a treasure the town of Hamden and the state of Connecticut has and I'm so happy we found it.
This school is terrific! My son watched for years as other kids in his class worked their ways through the belts. He decided to try Ziwaks, and, even though he is several years older than many of the other students in his belt range, he has been made to feel proud, successful and responsible. There are two Masters and many many competent helpers. I am particularly impressed with the way that the Masters incorporate the higher belt holders in the way that instruction is distributed. Everyone is responsible for everyone else - just another one of the class lessons that resonates with the way things should be in real life. We love this place.
Excellent martial arts school. Traditional in teaching and values, with technical instruction that is second to none. You will not find a better school for this type of martial arts around. Classes are offered six days a week at convenient times that make attendance easy for most schedules. If your motivation is simply one of health and fitness, the intense cardio workout you'll get at Ziwak's Taekwondo is leaps and bounds better than the typical gym's spin or "kick" class. Ziwaks is much more than just a great workout. The practical self defense you'll learn is a skill. Moreover, you will not get bored training at Ziwak's, as no two classes are the same.
I have been a student at Ziwak's Tae Kwon Do for over 6 years and the school has truly impacted my life in a number of positive ways. The benefits that I have received from training are endless. The instructors are top notch and experts at what they do. From the moment I walked through the door I have felt welcomed, supported, and encouraged to to push myself to the next level. I have also always appreciated the core values of respect, discipline, and perseverance that are so prevalent at the school. I highly recommend Ziwak's to people of all ages and abilities.
Ziwak's Martial Arts provides a supportive atmosphere allowing people of all ages and abilities to train in the martial arts. This training allows for both physical as well as mental conditioning. As a family we have been training at Ziwak's for 10 years. Training at Ziwaks's has been an instrumental part in our sons development. We would highly recommend this school to anyone without reservation.
Approaching 20 years training at Ziwak's Tae Kwon Do, not only did I achieve my 2nd Don and continue training, but also made me the man I have become. With the core values of respect and discipline as the foundation blocks of the school, I am proud to say that this foudation has not changed. If anything it became stronger with each new member who is welcome with open arms and family values. We are a family that not only kicks together, but stays together.
My children and I have been training at Ziwaks for over 10 years, we love it here and wouldn't go anywhere else.If you are looking for traditional instruction and are serious about the martial arts this is the school for you, at any age and any ability just come with the right attitude you will have made the right choice
